Jack Thomas was a Norfolk, Virginia, public school principal when he purchased Annie Carrs Cabin in the 1970s. He tried roughing it for a while but ultimately decided that a more modern dwelling was more suitable to his needs. So in the early 1980s he built a one-bedroom mountain chalet right behind Annies Cabin.
Jack's Place was remodeled in Feburary of 2014. The new cabin features a beautiful, comfortable living area that has a sofa, a large comfortable rocking chair and a TV with a DVD player for watching movies if you desire to bring any (there is no satellite in Jack's). It has heating and airconditioning. All of the kitchen has been upgraded with brand new appliances. There is a full size refrigerator, a stove, oven and all other small appliances such as a coffee maker and microwave. There is also plenty of cabinet space. A dining table and four chairs are provided. Basic pots, pans and tableware are provided.
The new bedroom features a full bed, nightstand and lamp and a chest of drawers and a beautiful antique mirror. Bed linens, blankets and pillows are provided. Off of the bedroom, there is a private bathroom with a brand new tub/shower combination as well as a granite topped vaniety. Guest towels are provided.
The staircase to the loft is very steep and is not recommended for older guests or the very young. The loft has a catwalk down the middle of the roofline and a small sleeping area at each end. A double bed is located on both sides of the upper loft.
The porch offers gorgeous views of the mountains and there is a set of Adirondack wooden furniture and a porch swing for lazy summer afternoons. A Weber Smokey Joe grill and grilling utensils are provided for barbecuing. Off to the side of Jacks Place is a stone fire pit for building campfires and a wooden picnic table for eating alfresco. (Chopped firewood is available for purchase from the office.) The chalet is located only about fifteen feet from Annies Cabin, which is nice if you have a group and want to have everyone nearby. The grounds are beautifully landscaped and maintained with indigenous fruit trees and flowering plants.
For all weekends we do have a two night minimum for each cabin (Thursday and Friday, Friday and Saturday, Saturday and Sunday).
